Spectacular and remote loop in the Chamberlain Basin and Germania Creek
area. Great views of Chamberlain Basin. All singletrack that in some cases
is shared with motos. From the trailhead, take Germania Creek down 1.6
miles to Washington Creek. Go left and climb Washington Creek trail for 1.2
miles to a junction with a trail to Chamberlain Lakes. Take a right and
continue on this trail for another 1.2 miles to another junction to
Chamberlain lakes. After taking another right, continue for another 2 miles
to the summit overlooking Chamberlain Basin, the lakes, and Castle Peak.
Drop down into the basin and follow the steep and sometimes loose,
sometimes faint singletrack down Chamberlain Creek about 5 miles to
Germania Creek trail. Climb Germania Creek trail 6.1 miles back to the
trailhead. Great mix of high mountain passes, great vistas, open
sagebrush, forested singletrack, creek crossings, open meadows, and
everything else you'd expect on a ride on the Boulder-White Clouds.
